“I’ll never forget the panic, shock, despair and horror in the airport as people managed to call home and find out what was actually happening.
“They immediately shut down all the bridges and tunnels into the city so I stayed in Brooklyn that night at my dear friends Toure & Rita.
“Like everyone else, we watched the footage over and over, speechless. I remember watching the smoke and dust clouds from Fort Greene helpless, like it was another planet.
“The next few days, there was a huge overflow of people trying to volunteer and help.
“I already lived only 10 blocks from the towers, so I could get past the last checkpoint to volunteer without registering.

"I walked up and down the West Side Highway with a trolley cart of supplies and water and gave every last coat and sweatshirt I owned to emergency responders drenched in water, soot, etc…
“This obviously doesn’t compare one billionth to what so many gave on that day.
“I feel some sort of need to observe the loss and sacrifice of an unfathomably horrid event but I still can’t quantify it.
“What I do know is that it brought out the very best parts of the citizens of the greatest city in the world. To those who were lost, you will never be forgotten.
“For New Yorkers, you’re forever in our souls and conscience.”
